Double Secret Recycling

One of my readers really loved the recycled spaghetti jar lids I made into wine glass caps and decided she was going to make them...until she realized her husband had just taken all of the recycling down to the center! We emailed a few times, and I told her that my way to avoid this is to train everyone in the house what constitutes things we have to keep, and then I have a large box set aside for Recycling Mom Can Make Crap Out Of.
Yeah, really.
So cereal boxes, empty jars, peanut tins, wine boxes, and anything else that someone suspects could be repurposed get set aside for my leisurely perusal before they ever see recycling. 
I have the people in my office doing it too.
Bridget dropped off two snap lidded snack containers last week, and Ann just handed me a bag with a cereal box and some Styrofoam packing pieces. Yes, I'm having my trash delivered now.
"Can you use these?"

You bet I can.

There's a craft cabinet makeover in my future.
